A Medicus film?
Great steady Kodachrome shots, a feel for what it must have been like to visit there in 1940. Is this not the same Medicus who shot the 1939 Worlds Fair films? Compare the son who rode the horse here with the son who climbed up on top of the model Perisphere at the World's Fair Kodak exhibit.

A pretty spectacular trip to the Grand Canyon. While I sometimes bore out from Amateur movies getting stuck on one shot, this film was never boring because of the gorgeous kodachrome photography. Quite a fascinating portrait of the park, as some of the safety fences look hopelessly simplistic, and I am very curious whether you could just go out now and sit on a unsettled cliff, jag or rock nowadays, as some of these shots have. Highly reccomended!
